Finished this last night and am still mulling it over There were moments as I was reading it when I smiled or chuckled or maybe even laughed out loud at some of the uirky bits and phrases I really wish I d followed my sometimes pattern of marking those spots so I could dutifully report them here but for some reason I didn t mark themLet me say straight off that there were several things I really liked about this book The main thing was how Concord Press and Gregory Maguire made it available to the reading public It was incredibly generous and altruistic and far reaching Don t believe me Then see the list of charities and contributions people who have received this book have done in return for the gift everything from the usual spots for donation to 20 Au to a blind Aborigine on the streets of Alice Springs More than 114950 at this writing Generosity based publishing rocks Thank you Concord Press and thank you Mr MaguireI think I went into this expecting this to be a little light hearted All I had to go on was the blurb on the site which said Set in the grotty upstate town of Thebes The Next ueen of Heaven is a Christmas tale gone horribly wrong Clocked by a Catholic statuette Mrs Leontina Scales starts speaking in tongues Tabitha Scales and her brothers scheme to save their mother or surrender her to Jesus whatever comes first Meanwhile choir director Jeremy Carr caught between lust and ambition fumbles his way toward Y2K The book was that but also involved a heavy amount of teenaged angstanger from a sullen not so nice teenage girl and her eually dysfunctional brothers a lot of struggling with the HIV homosexuality in the lives of three men in Thebes and a dying order of nuns I think I expected the Y2K part to be a bit bigger in the general scheme of things and the lust of a certain Pentecostal minister to be a lesser partBut in general the writing was good crisp and clean Maguire has a talent for showing the other side of the story and does so once again uite nicely here There were a lot of the Catholic bits that made me smile I think the main disappointment was that the book did not match my expectations and what I thought it would be about That certainly isn t the author s fault He told the story he set out to tell If I wanted something different then perhaps I need to write it myself

I must admit I m a complete sucker for books that are set in small towns If I hear about a book or read the blurb on the back cover and it says something along the lines of A group of characters live in a small town called X and X happens to them well chances are the money is already leaving my wallet and the book is coming home with me Perhaps it s because I grew up in a small town myself so I m naturally drawn to these things Whatever the case with my affinity for these small town books Gregory Maguire has written perhaps his most understated and ambitious novel since Wicked in The Next ueen of Heaven and it s set in of course a small town called Thebes in upstate New York Themes such as heartbreak faith and homosexuality are present here and Maguire doesn t pull any stops when it comes to displaying modern society and notions of religion in all its passion and irony The book has virtually everything you could want in a novel that uses a small town setting a cast of believable and amusing characters themes that anyone who grew up in a small town could probably relate to and to top it all off the novel is set during the Christmas season What s not to like about that This isn t to say the book is perfect I actually found myself embroiled in an internal debate halfway through of whether I was going to give it two stars or three stars or even finish it for that matter due to some slower parts in the middle Thankfully I did finish it and the ending was complete and satisfying and answered any lingering uestions I had regarding the book s ultimate message Maguire isn t always the clearest about what s going on in his pages though I suppose that s what comes with his poetic and sometimes indistinct style Thankfully Maguire s two protagonists the high school age Tabitha and Jeremy a lovesick gay twenty something male are strong believable and relatable Tabitha is dealing with her own teenage rebellion and hopeless love lust for a wild loser while caring for her ailing and addled mother and Jeremy is facing his own set of internal issues namely a friend dying of AIDs and an old lover who lives close by and is now married I won t spoil anything but there is a chapter of unreuited tragic love that is particularly well written and memorable and the ending of the book is perhaps one of my favorite Maguire endings ever There s really not much to not like about The Next ueen of Heaven It s a fun festive book that doesn t take itself too seriously while at the same time tackling many many complicated religious and societal issues If you like Gregory Maguire or any of the themes I mentioned above chances are you ll like this one
